Join us to enjoy and wonder over the 10 winning and shortlisted films chosen for this year's Quantum Shorts film festival, a unique competition that challenges filmmakers to tell a story inspired by quantum mechanics with no more than five minutes of film time.
Date: 13 May 2021
Time: 6:00–9:00 pm
Venue: Ross Lecture Theatre, 25 Fairway, #G41, Crawley, WA 6009
Cost: FREE (ticket includes entry to the event and snacks)
The ten shortlisted films were chosen from 224 films received from 52 different countries during the festival’s call for entries in 2020.
The judges praised the shortlisted films. “Quantum Shorts makes a big ask: to produce a compelling short film that also connects with the complex science of quantum physics,” they said. “The diverse and creative films that made this year’s shortlist have different strengths in how they respond to this challenge.”
Entry is free of charge and movie snacks will be provided, so feel free to bring your family and friends for a night sure to feed your curiosity.

The films are rated for general audiences, but some touch on themes such as loss and existentialism, which may be distressing for some viewers.
Most films are subtitled; a few involve on-screen messages or subtitles (eg, for dialogue in languages other than English).
